So (or should I say "Snow") now we have a problem...removal! Even though we live in town, the city is cleaning only the main roads. A few neighbors fought their way out today, but several tried and went back home. This problem had me thinking and I thought I had arrived at the perfect solution.....eat it! Yes, seriously, my kids ate 3 days worth of food today SO if we make snow ice cream, then I figure my crew could reach the main road in 48 hours!
"Snow" I experimented with several snowy recipes today. Paula Deem offered up one that I was sure would be tasty, but too high calorie and too expensive....she uses sweetened condensed milk, but then again she makes good money and does not have as many (non-paying) mouths to feed as we do. The recipe below is from a friend's friend. (Thank you to Kathryn Gold's friend!)
"Snow" here is the "BEST" Snow Ice Cream Recipe:
1 gallon of snow
1 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
just shy of a 1/2 cup sugar (1/2 cup was a bit sweet)
Mix all ingredients except snow. Dump over the snow & stir.
